Head-On Collision Sends Two to the Hospital

A Lufkin man was killed in an auto accident earlier today and another sent to the hospital. Lufkin Police say 71-year-old Albert Grumbles of Pollok was driving east on Atkinson Drive in Lufkin when he got into the center lane and began to turn into a private drive. That's when a pickup driven by 26-year-old Ryan Watson of Huntington hit Grumbles head on.

Both men were taken to Memorial Hospital in Lufkin where Grumbles later died. Watson was treated and released.
